Editors’ Notes

Uncle Kracker throws together an unlikely mix and makes it work — elements of hip-hop, nods to hard rock, sunshine L.A. harmonies, Midwestern viewpoints, country music settings, a soft rock appeal, and even a little Auto-Tune to modernize these early ‘70s dreams and potential hits for the early ‘80s and onward. The opening harmonies of “Smile” get things flowing in the right direction and a tune like “Another Love Song” celebrates the very thing Uncle Kracker’s aiming for. This Kid Rock acolyte knows all about having his life changed by rock ‘n’ roll and even if he prefers to chill like a younger, striving Jimmy Buffett, he intends on getting to the party eventually — if not on time. “Livin’ the Dream” tilts towards country with a heapful of Auto-Tune. “Corner Bar” watches the recession repossess his house and car, but it’s the girl who runs off with his girlfriend in “My Girlfriend” that confuses him most. These playful riffs eventually lead him to Detroit’s favorite son Bob Seger, but on the ballad side, with “Mainstreet.”

Customer Reviews

Uncle Kracker is back

This is a great album by Kracker. I wasn't really diggin his last one but this one is a great kick back, have a beer, backyard bbq style album. Top 5 songs: Smile Another Love Song My Girlfriend Livin' The Dream Good To Be Me


While this album is, in many ways, a departure from Kracker's earlier, Kid Rock guided music, its also very much an extension of Seventy-Two and Sunny. He stays away from rapping on this Happy Hour which reflects his mentor, the afforementioned Kid Rock's Rock Revival, and in doing so he creates a more relatable, radio-friendly record. There are many songs on this album that are worthy of radio air-time and they can be played on a variety of radio stations from country to rock to mainstream pop. "Smile" and "Me Again" with Jesse Lee are the highlights of the album. This is hands down his best album to date and to his fans, it will be well worth the wait.
